If your dealer and you cant fix it dont get mad if people on the internet cant fix your car. Trade it on a Lexus, no thunking guaranteed.

again, thank you for your generosity in helping those of us that have problems with our cars. you should go into the customer service industry, especially since you have enough time for sarcastic comments about other people's business. i truly appreciate it. so what kind of lexus should i get?

The thunking sound is your brains slapping against your skull for lack of density.

Very childish reply and not necessary in this forum.

Well....it's been a month or so since I posted on me tightening the upper link bolts. The car has not made a noise since. All I did was loosen the upper link bolt, then tighten the heck out of it again. No noise. I can't say this will fix everyone's issue, because people have tried all kinds of solutions. Just my two cents. Worth a try, and cheap too.

I also have the Tokico D-specs, so that might also have something to do with the solution working; but it did make the noise with the Tokicos installed. But once I tightened to bolt again, Voila!

I will be taking it auto-xing in a few weeks (2/25), so we'll see if it starts to make noise again after that. If there is a way to stress the suspension, auto-x will do it.

BTW, I have 36k miles on the car and I drive everyday.

MY05GT--I'm gonna try that tomorrow. thanks for the diagram that should simplify things, not that tightening a nut is complicated but you get the idea.

Anybody check/have checked the bushings/mounts connecting the subframe to the body like Wolfey suggested? i guess i'll crawl under there tomorrow, although i just have ramps and ideally i'd like the weight off of there so i can jiggle stuff around.

I HAVE A CLUNK OR TAPPING TYPE NOISE FROM THE LEFT FRONT, I THINK? BUT THIS ONLY COMES WHEN IT FEELS LIKE IT, NOT ALWAYS? IT ALSO DOES IT ON SMOOTH ROAD WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE IT COULD ALSO CAUSED BY WIND??
I HAVE ONLY 400 KILOMETERS ON MINE AND IT PI-- ME OFF!!
